Emirates, Etihad open June flights from Manila, Pakistan to UAE

 

DUBAI – This June, Emirates and Etihad have opened one-way flights to the UAE from select cities, including Manila and Pakistan, to allow expatriates to return to the country.

Earlier in May, UAE authorities announced that expatriates with valid residence visa and family in the UAE can start returning to the country, provided that they have already secured an entry permit from the Federal Authority For Identity and Citizenship (ICA).

The ICA called on those qualified to register for an entry permit through the service Residents’ Entry Permit via its website on smartservices.ica.gov.ae. Currently, airlines require an ICA approval number before booking tickets.

Emirates

From June 8, Emirates will offer flights from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad for travellers from Pakistan who wish to reach Dubai.

This is on top of passenger flights already operating to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne and Manila.

For Manila, a one-way flight to Dubai was scheduled on Saturday (June 6), with economy rates starting at $588.

Etihad

Abu-Dhabi based carrier Etihad said will operate a number of flights until June 30 to help expatriates return to the UAE.

“Travellers must hold a valid UAE resident visa and ICA approval number – you will not be permitted to enter the UAE otherwise,” Etihad reminded travellers.

All passengers will undertake Covid-19 testing and thermal testing when they arrive into Abu Dhabi, and are required to self-isolate for 14 days.

“Due to government restrictions across our network, you will be required to check in your cabin baggage before you fly. You will only be permitted to carry a personal item on board, such as a handbag, backpack or laptop bag. This can weigh up to 5kg,” Etihad said.

“You will also be required to present proof of your booking if your journey time to or from the airport coincides with UAE curfew hours,” Etihad said.

How to book

Before you can fly, you must apply for ICA approval. The service will ask for your flight booking reference, however it is not mandatory and you can leave this field blank.

If your application is successful, you’ll receive a unique ICA approval number, which you will need for when your check-in for your flight. All guests must ensure they have ICA approval from the Abu Dhabi Government before they fly. Guest who do not have ICA approval will not be accepted at check-in.

If you’re having difficulty following up on your application to return to the UAE, you can call the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship on + 971 600 522222.

Things to know before you fly

It is compulsory to wear a face mask while you travel. You must wear your face mask when you arrive at the airport and keep it on for the duration of your journey.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly at regular intervals, and follow social distancing guidelines carefully at all times.

Baggage

Due to government restrictions across our network, you will be required to check in your cabin baggage before you fly. You will only be permitted to carry a personal item on board, such as a handbag, backpack or laptop bag. This can weigh up to 5kg.

Check-in

From 30 hours before your flight, you can check-in and choose your seat online or via the airline app. To help airlines follow social distancing guidelines as closely as possible, some of our seats are unavailable.

Check-in at the airport opens three hours before your scheduled flight time. Your boarding pass will be ready to collect when you arrive.

On board

On board, crew members will make sure you are seated with as much space as possible between every guest. Remember – it is compulsory to wear a face mask whilst you are at the airport, on board the aircraft and when you arrive at your destination.

When you land, temperature screening is in operation at Abu Dhabi airport, and you’ll be asked to wait two metres apart from other guests at all queuing points. When you arrive in the UAE, you must self-isolate for a period of 14 days.
